I was looking around for inspiration to create some cards for my classes at Beachmere when I saw this week’s sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
I attached Bermuda Bay card to Very Vanilla card and embossed the whole piece using the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder. I wrapped the join with 7/8″ Natural Trim before attaching to scored and folded Very Vanilla card. I attached a piece of Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper over the top of the Natural Trim. I made mine go the full length of the card front because I obviously didn’t pay enough attention to the sketch. I stamped the elephant from the You’re Amazing stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Basic Gray ink. I cut the image out using one of the Circle Framelit Dies and attached it to a slightly larger circle cut from Gumball Green card. The image panel is attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the elephant onto Summer Starfruit card using Basic Gray ink and cut out the hat only and attached it over the stamped one. I couldn’t resist adding a few Basic Rhinestones to the hat just for fun.
Inside the card I attached another strip of the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper with a narrow strip of Summer Starfruit card behind the top edge. I stamped the balloon using Basic Gray ink and the greeting using Island Indigo ink. Both these images are from the You’re Amazing stamp set.
I think the ladies at Beachmere are going to like this one. What about you?
Bye for now,
